Citroën House, an early example of a concrete-framed building, was built in 1916 as a showroom service depot for Ford Motor Company. The architects were Charles Heathcote & Sons of Manchester, who also designed Ford's factory at Dagenham. Citroën succeeded Ford in 1923, giving the building their name. Citroën House was requisitioned for the RAF in WWII and later occupied by Osram.
